Our South Island Travel

hi all, it has been a while since I have been on my blog so thought it was time to update! I have been busy with lovely people who come to card classes and we have made some lovely cards. Working on some Christmas projects now.
Flo, Raine and I went to Christchurch to 'The Great NZ Craft Show' - the weather was lovely, however the show was quite quiet. We had a number of ladies book into our Cricut Teaching Evenings and made some great friends. Christchurch now has a 'Cricut Group' and we wish them all the best getting together and learning from each other. It never fails to amaze me how talented people are!
Unfortunately Raine had to fly back to her family. Flo and I continued on and headed for Dunedin. We stopped in Oamaru at the Top 10 Holiday Park for the night. What absolutely lovely people who run it and we had a lovely room. Flo and I had a spa and fell into very comfy beds and fell asleep. Next day headed off to Dunedin. I was told it was hilly but my goodness it is HILLY!!! Again we met some lovely people and had a nice time. The Great NZ Craft Show was again quite quiet and as both Flo and I had gotten colds we decided to pack up and head home. We drove back to Christchurch and spent one day there. From Christchurch to Dunedin and back again the spring bulbs were blooming everywhere and it was sooo great to see them and know that Spring was here. A big big thanks to my son who lent us a lovely car with GPS and all mod-cons to drive around in. Not sure what we would have done without that car!! He was kind enough to take us to the airport and we flew home in beautiful weather.
To those who bought Cricut machines from us at the shows, thank you.  Flo and I look forward to seeing what you create with them.
Back home - and some of the ladies have asked me to make some 'little critters' from the 'create a critter' cartridge, for them to put on cards, so I am busy making them over the next couple of days. will put some pics up when I have done them. Also have a lovely Christmas Card for October Thursday class.
Well it is time for me to get busy again so will take some pics of what we have been doing and post on here later.
take care and keep well. 
Love that you follow my blog and would love for you to pass it on.
